Circus of Dreams
October 4, 2015

Circus 1Make-A-Wish Minnesota was honored to participate in this year’s “Circus of Dreams” event hosted by Hair Expressions salon of Arden Hills, MN.  Jimmy’s Event Center in Vadnais Heights was transformed to host the high fashion circus inspired Circusperformance, featuring music, models, dancers, circus acts.... and of course great hair and makeup! 

Circus of Dreams raised enough adopt two wishes and honored these wish families at the event.  Wish child Aden, who wishes to go to Walt Disney World® Resort, and Gretchen, who wished to meet the cast of Girl Meets World, were there with their families and got front row seats to enjoy the circus.

The event featured every circus animal imaginable: lions, tigers, bears, zebras, and elephants.  They also had acts with fire dancers, tight-rope walkers/dancers, show girls, the ring master, jesters, and a snake charmer (with a real boa constrictor)!  


Thank you SO much to Hair Expressions for hosting this fantastic event and including our wish kids in the festivities!
